Private, Academic Institutions Join Indiana Protein Center

NEW YORK, July 19 (GenomeWeb News) - The Indiana Centers for Applied Protein Sciences, a for-profit venture that provides contract proteomic technology validation and protein analysis services, said last week that several Indiana-based private and academic institutions have joined the center as founding members.

 

The founding members are: Eli Lilly; the Purdue Research Foundation; Indiana University Health Care Associates; Indiana University's Advanced Research and Technology Institute; Inproteo, a commercial research alliance between Lilly, Indiana University, and Purdue University; and BioCrossroads, Indiana's initiative for the expansion of the life sciences sector, which helped establish INCAPS.

 

The founding members have provided INCAPS with $1.8 million in cash and in-kind support, the protein center said.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.
